Xanthe Dobbie

Xanthe Dobbie is a Melbourne-based new media artist and curator. Her practice aims to capture the experience of post-internet contemporaneity as reflected through feminism, art history, iconography and queer culture. Many of her works take the form of large-scale moving collages, which are compositionally-based around 14th and 15th-century religious iconography. Combining snippets of sourced footage and found images in hundreds of carefully manipulated layers, she develops animated paintings, which merge contemporary internet and trash culture with loaded historical imagery.
